MIT/UC Berkeley Team Up For Graphene Advancement

on Tuesday, Dec. 17th

You’ll have to excuse us for getting a little excited about graphene, the super-conducting material that also works as a super-capicitor. We’ve written about the material before because it has the potential to revolutionize battery technology, perhaps ushering in a period of accelerated innovation in green energy technologies.

This week there’s been some forward motion on bringing the cost of working with the material down.

A team of researchers at MIT and the University of California at Berkeley has found a simple, inexpensive treatment that may help to unleash graphene’s potential. Currently, many suggested uses of graphene require treatments that can be expensive and difficult to apply predictably.

There are still a host of issues with graphene, which in the end may turn out to be have some serious health-related side effects in industrial settings. Still, it is hard not to hold onto a flicker of hope that a green energy revolution is just around the corner.
